Prevent the Flu from Spreading in Your Office – Don’t Let the Flu Take Your Employees Down

Flu season is around the corner. Everything will be fine until one day when you walk into your office and notice it’s full of sad, sniffling employees struggling to work through a heavy brain fog. But it doesn’t have to be this way. If you start preparing yourself now, you can skip the flu outbreak and have a much happier, healthier winter. We at D’s Cleaning want to help you stop the flu virus before it takes your employees down. We’ve compiled a list of some helpful tips to help you prevent the flu from spreading and keep your office running efficiently.

 

Use Flu-Fighting Products to Prevent the Flu from SpreadingWoman caught flu from office

Did you know that cleaning your office with basic cleaning products doesn’t get rid of the flu virus? You need to use a high-quality flu disinfectant cleaning product to kill the virus. Check the labels and do some research on your cleaning products to make sure they are capable of fighting off that nasty virus. If not, you may just be spreading the germs around.

At D’s Cleaning, we use safe, industrial grade cleaning products that kill the flu virus from all surfaces. If you’re in need of a meticulous team of cleaners with an impressive collection of top-quality products at hand, call D’s Cleaning Service today. We’ll help keep your employees safe from the flu so you can keep your business running efficiently through flu season.

 

Disinfect All Surfaces, Especially These Virus Hot Spots

It’s easy to wipe down the countertops, clean the bathroom, tidy the kitchen, and think your office is clean. Your office looks clean, but germs and bacteria are running rampant on all your most frequently touched surfaces. These virus hot spots need to be attacked with a high-quality flu disinfectant frequently to prevent the virus from infecting your employees. When disinfecting your office this flu season, don’t neglect these major virus hot spots:

  • Computer Mice and Keyboards
  • Desks and Computers
  • Door Handles
  • Fridge Handles
  • Kitchenware
  • Remote Controls
  • Sinks and Faucet Handles
  • Telephones
  • Toilets and Toilet Handles
  • Towels

Keep the Office Kitchen Sparkling Clean to Prevent the Flu from SpreadingCleaning employees cleaning office to prevent flu

Do you have an office kitchen with a shared coffee station, mugs, cups, and plates? If so, you need to be extra careful about preventing the spread of flu germs in your office kitchen. In this area where people are constantly eating and drinking, one contaminated cup or coffee pot could take down half the office.

To keep your employees safe, maintain a high standard of cleanliness in the kitchen. Use a high-quality disinfecting dish detergent like the orange Dawn Ultra Antibacterial dish soap. You may need to post a friendly reminder near the sink to remind employees to wash their dishes thoroughly and immediately before restocking them. Wipe down the countertops, cabinet handles, and coffee pot handles with flu-fighting disinfectant frequently. With these simple tips, you can keep your office kitchen clean and germ-free.

 

Keep Your Employees Happy, Healthy, and Hydrated

You can decrease your employees’ likelihood of becoming infected with the flu ten-fold with the above helpful tips, but there’s no way to completely eliminate this dangerous, invisible virus. A strong immune system is the key to keeping viruses and bacteria at bay.

Your employees are less likely to contract the flu virus if they are maintaining their immune systems with healthy habits and less stress. Make sure to have a water station at your office and encourage your employees to stay extra hydrated this season. Maintain a happy, positive workplace environment, because stress increases the likelihood of getting sick. Encourage your employees to maintain healthy eating and sleeping habits.

These healthy habits will strengthen your employees’ immune systems so they can fight off any germs, bacteria, or viruses that come their way.

 

D’s Cleaning Can Help Keep Your Office Flu-Free

Overall, use disinfectant cleaning products, don’t neglect virus hot spots, and make sure your employees are taking good care of themselves this flu season. And if you’re in need of an expert cleaning service with high quality, flu-fighting products, call D’s Cleaning. We can help you keep your office disinfected and sparkling clean. We’ll be your first line of defense against germs, bacteria, and viruses. We won’t let sickness take your employees down this winter.

How to Get Rid of Coffee Stains

How to Get Rid of Coffee Stains

Don’t Let A Coffee Stain Ruin Your Day, Remove it with These Tips

The morning sunshine is peaking through your kitchen window to find you sitting in your favorite spot at the dining table. You raise an over-filled cup of joe to your lips when you slightly miss your mouth and see the scorching espresso-colored liquid hit your spotless carpet.

Don’t panic! Coffee stains aren’t as impossible to remove as you might think. With these tips from D’s Cleaning, you’ll have those stains out before they set in no time.

 

Getting Rid of Fresh Coffee Stains

Stain from spilled coffee on the carpet

A fresh coffee stain can be a dreadful thing. The liquid seeps into furniture fabric and quickly darkens a small or large area (depending on the amount spilled). The situation isn’t completely hopeless. Remember, plenty of other coffee drinkers have been in your shoes too! Here are a few items you may have around the house that can remove a fresh stain before it gets worse:

  • Salt

Grab a salt shaker and sprinkle salt on the stain. Be sure to use enough salt to cover the stain with several layers before leaving it alone for a minute. Then gently rub it away with a paper towel or cloth. It may not completely remove the stain, but it should prevent it from spreading further.

  • Baking Soda

Baking soda is more than likely to work better than the salt at removing the stain. Before you begin dumping baking soda onto your stain, use a damp paper towel to blot the area. Then sprinkle baking soda over the stained area and let it seep in for a few minutes before removing it with a dry towel. This method may still leave a mark, but it will get the majority of the coffee stain out.

  • Baby Powder

If you have baby powder handy, then all you need to do is apply it on the stain and let it sit for a few minutes before brushing it off with a damp cloth or paper towel.

 

Getting Rid of Dried Coffee Stains

The only thing worse than a fresh coffee stain is a dried coffee stain. These types of stains are tougher to get out because the liquid has already seeped deeply into the fabric or carpet fibers. To get rid of these stains, you’ll need patience as well as liquid laundry detergent or dish soap.

Combine a few drops of liquid detergent or dish soap with some water and rub your fingers into the stain. After rubbing, let the stain sit for five minutes then rinse the stain with cold water. Repeat these steps until the stubborn stain fades away.

 

Getting Tough Coffee Stains Out of Carpet with Extra PowerHands cleaning coffee stain on carpet

Don’t fret if coffee spills onto your home’s carpet. It won’t be easy, but it is possible to remove with our tips and a little bit of elbow grease. Here are a few solutions so you can recover your carpet:

  • Vinegar & Dish Soap

Mix a spoon of white vinegar and liquid dish soap with about two cups of room temperature water. Blot the stain with a cloth or paper towel. Continue blotting the stain while alternating with wet and dry cloths or paper towels until the stain disappears.

  • Hydrogen Peroxide

Hydrogen peroxide is a gentler bleach cleaner that won’t damage your carpet. Spray the stained area with hydrogen peroxide without saturating the carpet, then place a damp dish towel over the stain and pass an iron over the towel for 20-30 seconds. Move the iron around the towel until the stain is lifted.

  • Deep Carpet Cleaning

Get your stained carpet back to its original crisp, clean quality with carpet cleaning services from D’s Cleaning. We have the equipment, industry-grade solutions, and top-grade training to get the trickiest of stains out. Our deep cleaning services also gets dirt and allergens out, creating a healthier environment.

With these tips, you’ll be able to remove unexpected or old coffee stains from your furniture or carpet quickly and efficiently. Call D’s Cleaning today at 225-572-9497 to get help cleaning the coffee stains out of your carpet that you can’t handle on your own.

The Best Way to Clean Mirrors

Cleaning Mirrors Can Be Tricky –These Tips Can Help

Has your mirror gotten so dirty that you can’t recognize your own reflection anymore? Or maybe you’ve tried to clean a mirror only to have large streaks left behind. D’s Cleaning Services will have your bathroom or bedroom mirrors looking spic and span when you follow our tips on the best way to clean mirrors.

Knowing where to start with cleaning mirrors can be the hardest part. There are so many different types of cleaning products and drying methods, along with all the DIY tips from the internet.

 

What Doesn’t Work:

Man cleaning mirror in the bathroom

  • Newspaper

Newspapers used to be the way to clean mirrors, but the ink used today can leave behind a residue on your mirror when drying.

  • Paper towels

This method of drying is very commonly practiced among homeowners, but unfortunately, it’s not the best option. Paper towels leave behind small pieces of paper fiber, making mirrors look dusty even after they’re clean.

  • Wiping a foggy mirror with a towel

It might be convenient to use your towel to “clean” your foggy mirror after you jump out of the shower, but this isn’t the best way to approach cleaning your mirrors. This method leaves mirrors looking extremely streaky after they dry.

  • Generic cleaning products

Products that aren’t labeled as a window cleaner should be avoided. There are other types of cleaners dedicated to cleaning mirrors that will make your mirror shine bright. Generic cleaning products aren’t always made with materials that should be used to clean glass or mirrors.

 

What to Use:Hand cleaning mirror

  • A flat-weave microfiber cloth

These cloths are made for fast drying and lint-free results. A microfiber cloth also prevents debris from sticking to the cloth.

  • Rubbing alcohol and cotton pad

Rubbing alcohol can be used to remove the buildup of toothpaste, handprints, and dirty stains that are difficult to remove with just glass cleaner alone.

  • Homemade glass cleaner

One cleaner you can make easily at home is a mixture of vinegar and water. Mix together one-part white vinegar to one-part water in a spray bottle to create this homemade solution. This is a classic cleaning method, but you should be aware that the smell of vinegar is likely to linger for a while after it dries.

 

Double Check Your Work

Make sure to double check your work after you’re done wiping. Check for any scuff marks or missed spots on the surface from different angles. If you catch a stain or two still left, just spot clean until it’s streak-free.

Five Mistakes a Business Owner Can Make When Hiring an Office Cleaning Company

5 Mistakes a Business Owner Makes When Hiring an Office Cleaning Company

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Cleaning, Cleaning Tips

Don’t Make These 5 Mistakes When Hiring an Office Cleaning Company or You May Pay the Price

As a business owner, you want to have a clean office to make a good impression on clients, keep employees healthy, and maintain an inviting workspace. However, when it comes to finding the right office cleaning company for your business, it’s important to choose one that fits your needs. Here are five pitfalls to avoid when choosing a cleaning company for your Baton Rouge office.

 

  1. Hiring the Cheapest Option

As a business owner, you know it’s important to cut costs and increase profit. You might consider picking the cheapest option, but this usually costs you more in the long run. When you choose the cheapest cleaning service you can find, you’re sacrificing quality. A dirty or partially cleaned office is less professional-looking than one that is properly cleaned. You don’t want to have to pay for another company to come and finish the job. When it comes to office cleaning services, you really do get what you pay for.

 

  1. Not Learning Anything About the PeopleBusiness Agreement Made on Office Cleaning Company

One of the biggest mistakes businesses make when hiring an office cleaning crew is not learning anything about the people before hiring them. After all, you wouldn’t hire someone to work for your company without interviewing and getting to know them first. You need to make sure you’re hiring a business that’s friendly, dedicated, and good at what they do. One surefire way to check is to read the cleaning company’s reviews online. You can also ask the cleaning company for a list of references and contact the references. See what previous customers have to say about their experience with that cleaning company. If they had any issues with the company, see how those issues were dealt with and if they were resolved.

But don’t just take someone else’s word for it. You can also interview the cleaning company the old-fashioned way and feel the company out for yourself. You won’t get the chance to meet every member of the crew, but you can at least chat with the person who would be overseeing your office cleaning to discuss your expectations and ask any questions you may have. Look for a company with a good attitude that is easy to communicate with and dedicated to giving you good service.

 

  1. Hiring Uninsured, Unbonded, or Unlicensed Cleaners

A cleaning company is usually trusted to do their jobs fully and efficiently without harming your business or property. When looking for an office cleaning company, you need to make sure you’re hiring a reliable company that doesn’t pose any risk to your business. Don’t take a leap of faith and hire a cleaning company without checking that they’re licensed, insured, and bonded first.

Licensed means they are certified in cleaning services. In other words, they know what they’re doing and they have the documentation to prove it. Insured means that the cleaning company provides liability insurance, which provides coverage in the event of property damage or bodily injury claims. Bonded means that the customers and employees are protected against damage, loss, or other cost-inducing accidents. An unbonded cleaning company could cost your business thousands of dollars in damages if a worker suffers an accident or there are damages to your property while cleaning.

 

  1. Not Understanding Your Contract

    Office Cleaning Company at Work

If you’re looking to arrange scheduled office cleanings for your business, you’ll need a contract. This document will go over the specifics of your agreement with the cleaning company, like how often the office will be cleaned, what times the office will be cleaned, what’s included in the cleaning, and fees. Make sure all the services you want for your office cleaning are included in the contract, like carpet shampooing, floor polishing, window cleaning, etc. Ask if there are any additional fees, and if there are, make sure they’re justified. Make sure you read the full contract and understand it completely before you sign. It’s ok to ask questions; a good cleaning crew will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

 

  1. Not Asking About Supplies

Make sure your cleaning company is using industry grade products for quality sanitation. Some people, like those with asthma for example, are sensitive to certain chemicals. Some technology and machinery are sensitive to certain chemicals as well. An expert cleaner will be well-educated in this area and will use products that give quality results without damaging your property or harming the people in your office.

Also, make sure that the use of these supplies is included in the service charge. Some cheap cleaning companies require you to provide your own cleaning supplies. This is never a good deal because you may not have the cleaning supplies you need.

To sum it up, don’t hire the cheapest option; make sure you’re hiring good people who are licensed, insured, and bonded. And, understand your contract and make sure the cleaning products are up to snuff.

If you have any questions or need a high-quality cleaning service for your Baton Rouge office, call D’s Cleaning today at 225-572-9497.

What are Dust Bunnies Exactly?

What Are Dust Bunnies Exactly?

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Home

Dust Bunnies Are Not the Kind of Pets You Want Living in Your Home

 

When we hear the term “dust bunnies,” we think about cute, little bunnies with fluffy cottontails all burrowed up in the corners of our home or under the furniture. Real dust bunnies, however, are not the kind of pets you want to have living in your home. Like a normal bunny, dust bunnies grow over time, multiply quickly, and look rather fluffy. It’s best for your health and even safety to remove these balls of dust and dander as soon as possible.

 

What Are Dust Bunnies?

In the simplest terms, dust bunnies are dust, dust mites, lint, hair and skin particles, spider webs, and almost any other piece of small debris all balled up into one dirty particle. Dust bunnies are held together by static electricity and as a result, can actually become attracted to other dust bunnies to form one large dust bunny. Doesn’t sound that cute anymore, right?

Seeing dust bunnies around your home is a clear indicator that it’s time for your home to receive a good cleaning. The longer you put off your cleaning routine, the bigger the dust bunnies will be, both in size and quantity.

They Are More Than Just a Cleaning Problem

Having balls of dust and dander are unsightly to have around the home, but they also come with a bigger set of problems. Allowing dust to build up in your home can cause poor air quality as well as breathing problems for people with asthma, upper respiratory problems, and severe allergy flare-ups. Because dust bunnies are simply a collection of dust and allergen particles, the presence of these fluffy dust balls are no different from the dust buildup on your blinds.

Dust bunnies also pose a serious fire hazard. That’s right, those innocent-looking dust bunnies are known to be one of the culprits of house fires. Just like how lint buildup and excessive heat in dryers are not a good mix, dust buildup around your home and heat are a recipe for disaster. One small spark from a socket, too much heat from a floor heater, or a malfunction of another electronic item can cause a fire to ignite.

 

Banish Dust Bunnies from Your Home

All it takes is a few minutes of cleaning a week to eliminate your dust bunny problem. Vacuum up the dust balls that you see in the carpeted areas and use a broom to remove the debris on hard floor surfaces. The reason we recommend using a broom is that a vacuum may cause the dust and dander particles to break apart and circulate through the air. You will also need to use a broom to sweep up the dust bunnies in the hard-to-reach areas, such as underneath furniture and appliances. Be sure to also dust the top of cabinets, window sills, shelves, and other dust-collecting areas of the home.

Once you have removed the bunnies from your home, it’s time to clean up any leftover debris they may have left behind. Use a mop to collect the remaining dust particles from your floors thoroughly and a damp cloth for your cabinets, shelves, and appliances. A damp cloth will also help you remove the dust from the wall moldings, a secret spot where dust hides in your home.

Preventing Dust Bunnies from Returning

Once you eliminate your current dust bunny problem, it’s your job to make sure they don’t return. Routine cleanings will help prevent those pesky dust buildups from returning. Deep cleaning at least once a year will also help you remove the dust that is hidden deep within the home, such as your air ducts.

For thorough cleaning, we recommend hiring professional cleaners for routine cleanings, deep cleanings, or even both. With industry-grade cleaning products and equipment, our cleaning crew at D’s Cleaning Services can ensure that your home is free of dust bunnies and other dirty buildups that can accumulate over time.

Eliminate Pet Odors from Your Home with These Tips

 

We love our pets more than anything, but sometimes they can leave our house feeling dirty, furry, and downright smelly. When it comes to refreshing your home with your furry friends roaming around, there is more to eliminating pet odors than simply spraying air freshener. To effectively eliminate pet odors from your home, try these cleaning tips from D’s Cleaning Services.

 

Wash the Furniture, Blankets, and PillowsDog lying on the couch and causing pet odor

Fabrics absorb a lot of scents – even the bad ones. When your four-legged friend snuggles up in a blanket or rubs their fur against the couch, they are leaving their scent. That iconic pet smell comes from a mix of their saliva, fur, and hormone glands and it leaves a musty scent on blankets, sheets, and linens. Be sure to wash any fabric you can that your pet has rested on to eliminate the scent they left behind.

Wash their pet bed as well. Excluding your actual dog or cat, their bed will be the smelliest source. Most pet beds are machine washable, but be sure to follow the instructions on the label to prevent any mishaps.

 

Make Sure Your Pet Wipes Their Paws Before Coming Inside

Cleaning your pet’s paws after their outdoor adventures not only prevents your cat or dog from tracking in dirt and mud, but it will also help eliminate their smelly odors. Like humans, cats and dogs sweat when they get hot. However, rather than sweating from all over their bodies, they sweat from their paws! So, every time your pet walks back inside and around the home after working up a sweat outside, they are leaving their odorous scent everywhere they walk.

To prevent the smell from getting around the home, wipe their paws either by placing down a mat for them to walk on or wipe them yourself with a towel or cloth.

 

Vacuum and Mop the Floors to Remove the Hidden Pet Dander

Pets shed and leave their leftover fur all around the home. The loose dander that your pet leaves behind can not only cause allergy problems but also leave an odor in your home. To refresh your home from the pet dander, start by vacuuming the floors. Then run a mop over your tile and hardwood floors to eliminate the lingering odor and to pick up any hairs that may have been missed by the vacuum.

 

Use Odor-Eliminating Cleaners for Any Accidents

Puppies make an adorable addition to a family, but potty training has its own set of challenges, such as them going potty on the carpet. Even well-trained dogs may have accidents inside every now and then. They may even hack up a hairball or spit saliva on the floor. Whatever the case is, these accidents can all cause odors around the home. As you are cleaning up your pet’s accident, be sure to clean up the source and the areas surrounding it.

Remember, just because the spot is cleaned does not mean the odor is gone too. Be sure to use an odor-neutralizing spray to remove the scent that the accident may have left.

 

Consider Shampooing the CarpetDog paws, which cause pet odor

The amount of dirt and bacteria trapped in your carpets from regular foot traffic can build up for several months and even years. When you add both foot and paw traffic, your carpets will be filled with much more germs and dander. To effectively remove the pet odor from your home, you may have to call in stronger reinforcements. Deep cleaning your carpets will clean and eliminate the odors and dander that are trapped deep within the carpet.

 

For a Complete Pet Odor-Eliminating Clean That You Can See, Call D’s Cleaning

If you are facing a serious pet odor problem or just simply don’t have the time to get it done, calling in professional cleaners will be the best option. Using the best cleaning and disinfecting agents, our highly-trained cleaning staff at D’s Cleaning can effectively remove the deeply seated odors that are hidden around your home.

Impress New Clients Before You Meet Them with These Tips for a Clean Office

 

First impressions are important to everyone. When someone is going to an interview, they dress up, speak respectfully, and try to carry themselves well. Why? Because if they make a bad first impression, it makes it more difficult for them to find a job.

Businesses have the same problem. If a prospective client walks into a business and sees a messy lobby, dirty restroom, or grimy windows, they will think twice before purchasing from that business. At D’s Cleaning, we want to help your business make the best first impression it can with these tips for a clean office.

 

A clean desk thanks to office cleaning servicesA Messy Lobby Equals Lost Customers

Think about it—when you go into a business you’ve never been to before, what do you look for? If you go into a doctor’s or dentist’s office and the lobby is cluttered, the floors need to be cleaned, and there’s dust everywhere, you probably will think twice about sticking with that medical professional. The same thing applies to you and your business. Your lobby should be organized and free of dust, and the floors should be free from dirt and debris.

Your lobby is the first thing a potential customer will see, and they will form a negative opinion of you and your business based on that. When you have a clean lobby, it shows you pay attention to detail and care about the little things. Now, most business owners don’t have time to clean themselves and are too busy working on other business matters. Luckily, D’s Cleaning Service offers a general cleaning service to keep your lobby looking fresh and clean.

 

Dirty Restrooms Will Send Clients Running

Our next tip for a clean office is a big one—make sure your bathrooms are clean. If you’ve ever encountered a dirty restroom at a place of business, you know how uncomfortable it makes you feel. In fact, an independent study reported 94 percent of customers would avoid a business in the future if they encountered a messy bathroom.

If your business has a sparkling clean restroom, it will reflect positively on you and your business. Bathrooms should be stocked frequently, smell fresh, and the mirrors and floors should be cleaned regularly. If you want to make a good first impression with clients and employees, but don’t have the time or staff to maintain your restrooms, check out a general cleaning service.

Windows are the first thing people notice when they visit your business. Windows are kind of like your hair—when it’s messy, everyone notices. If your windows are dirty, it will be an immediate turn-off to future customers. Also, dirty windows will make your lobby look dull by blocking bright sunlight from streaming through the windows.

Your office windows should be crystal clear and spotless. To keep them clean, they should be wiped down with glass cleaner at least once per week. However, once they have gotten grimy and dirty on the outside, it will take more than a little elbow grease to clean them. Seek out a commercial cleaner that has a window cleaning service. Professionals, like D’s Cleaning Service, will wipe your windows back to a sparkling clean that will have you and your customers seeing the light once more.

 

When You Need Your Office Cleaned, Call D’s Cleaning

Making a good first impression is easy when you follow these office cleaning tips. When your lobby, restrooms, and windows are clean, new clients will be impressed and want to continue to do business with your company. Unfortunately, most business owners simply don’t have enough time to worry about cleaning. If you need professional cleaning services, call D’s Cleaning Service. We will work with you within your schedule to keep your office sparkling and help you keep the sales rolling in.

There are tons of commercial cleaning companies out there, and they all have different services. When you are looking for a commercial cleaning service for your business, think about which services you need. Do you need general dusting, vacuuming, and restroom maintenance? Or, do you need more in-depth cleaning on a regular basis? How often will your company need these services? These are some general questions to consider when you begin your search for a commercial cleaning service.

Consider what supplemental services the cleaning company offers, like window cleaning or deep carpet cleaning. If your office will need some of these additional services as well, it will be much easier on you if the cleaning company you hire already offers those services so you don’t have to work with multiple cleaning companies. Also, think about when you would like the cleaning service to come to your business. Do you want to have your office cleaned after hours? Should someone be there while the cleaning is taking place? Asking yourself these questions before you speak with a commercial cleaning service will help you narrow down your prospects.

 

Review Their Credentials and Insurance

Any commercial cleaning company worth their salt will be licensed by the city. This means they adhere to specific accountability standards put in place by the city. Licensed companies must maintain continuing education courses to stay informed of new and emerging techniques for commercial and residential cleaning. When a company is licensed by the city, it ensures you receive a service that is approved and monitored by the city.

Insurance is just as important as licensing. A commercial cleaning service should have liability insurance so their employees and your business are protected if one of their employees gets hurt while on the job. You want to be sure you aren’t going to be held liable because a company doesn’t have liability insurance.

Also, check with the company to ensure the company is bonded. Being bonded means the company has a business license, has the proper insurance, and has made payments to a surety company for protection by a bond. This means if the company breaks its promise to a customer and they suffer a financial loss, the bond provides reimbursement to the customer. When a company is licensed, bonded, and insured, it shows they are a legitimate company who backs their promises up with a security bond.

Reviews are important for any business, but especially so in the service industry. When you are considering a commercial cleaning service company, you may want to ask them for referrals and see what their current customers are saying about that company’s services. If the company isn’t willing to let you talk to their current clients, you know to move on to another company. Also, many companies will have a testimonials page on their website that you can look at for more information on the company’s quality of services.
